Released:
Label: Rhino Atlantic
By this point in Jean-Luc Ponty's career he had already worked with Frank Zappa, The Mahavishnu Orchestra and Stephane Grappelli. The French musician knew the sound he wanted and how to attain it. Significantly more melodic than the anarchic funk-fusion Miles Davis was then dealing in, 1975's Upon the Wings of Music possesses real kick. Electric pianist Patrice Rushen lays down punchy lines that perfectly underpin Ponty's lyrical, ever-mutating violin. One of the best tracks is "Echoes of the Future," which sounds influenced by Tangerine Dream and other Kosmische musik practitioners.
